Aristophanes is gone and now everyone wonders what it's like to be on the other side of the portal! What a great way to get the reader's attention with excitement spilling out from the first page of Crux #17!

It's a privilege for the readers to actually see the other side as Aristophanes faces down a Demon Lord. A raging battle that proves that Aristophanes is truly a warrior at heart. When the Demon Lord is finished in battle, it's not over for Aristophanes as he must battle a great monster from the bowels of this demon world. A monster that resembles a humongous octopus with tenacles.

What really caught me off guard is when Galvan makes his appearance within the monster, destroying the monster in a gooey mess. Now Aristophanes and Galvan - 2 Atlanteans are united and sent back to their own world by the Lawbringer who claims they are disrupting reality. The way Aristophanes threatens the Lawbringer that he may come back with an army to disrupt this demon world for a final time, leaves readers like myself breathless knowing that there is still a lot more to come. I knew Aristophanes wasn't playing when he does reach his reality and makes the decision of awakening the other Atlanteans!

This comic book definitely gets an exceptional 'wow!'
